“The Maritime Museum in Liverpool is home to numerous fascinating exhibitions about the many thousands of emigrants who left Britain via the Mersey for North America between 1830 and 1930. The museum also boasts an impressive collection of artifacts related to seafaring in Liverpool, stretching back in time as far as its establishment as a fishing port in the 13th century. This rich history is illustrated with model ships, workshops, and historic vessels. Equally fascinating are exhibits relating to the stories of the Titanic and Lusitania, two of the most famous - and tragic - passenger vessels in history (each had strong links with Liverpool). Other popular things to do include visiting the nearby U-boat Story, which depicts life aboard a submarine during wartime, and the impressive Commander-in-Chief, Western Approaches museum, with its original map rooms and displays relating to the Royal Navy in WWII.”
“The Walker Art Gallery boasts a rich collection of works by Italian, Flemish, and French masters from the 14th century to the present, including masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt, and Rodin. Its display of English painting and sculpture, particularly of the 18th to 20th centuries, is unrivaled outside London and features works by Gainsborough, Hogarth, and Moore. Of particular note is the poignant farewell scene at Liverpool's Pier Head, as depicted by John J. Lee, entitled Sweethearts and Wives. The John and Peter Moore Exhibition, an important display of contemporary British art, is held every alternate year. Associated with the Walker Art Gallery, Sudley House is an early 19th-century mansion on Mossley Hill and is home to a gallery containing artists such as Gainsborough and Turner.”
“The Cavern Pub, opposite the Cavern Club in Mathew Street, features an exterior wall with the names of all the artists who have played at the Cavern Club since it opened in 1957. You won’t be surprised to see the names of the Fab Four but there are many others such as Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, The Who, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Jimi Hendrix who played at the club in the 1960s and 70s. More recent additions include Adele, Jessie J, Jake Bugg and Arctic Monkeys. The newly remodelled Cavern Pub is full of history and amazing memorabilia from past performances at the Cavern. Live music is on offer weekday evenings and all day Saturday & Sunday. The Cavern Pub is open 7 days a week with free entry at all times.”
“An acclaimed branch of the Tate Gallery has been established in the Albert Dock. As chance would have it, the London Tate Gallery - established at the end of the 19th century with a legacy from the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate - found space in the warehouses where raw sugar was stored before being refined. The ground floor of the "Tate of the North" has exhibition halls and galleries dedicated to contemporary art as well as works on loan from the London gallery. Art lovers should also check out The Victoria Gallery and Museum. In a spectacular red-brick building at the University of Liverpool, the museum includes large collections of sculptures and ceramics, along with an impressive array of paintings by the likes of Lucian Freud and J. M. W. Turner. The facility also boasts a program of educational lectures and workshops, as well as a café and shop.”
